  • On Christmas dat 1066, William took the crown of England after defeating another person who also wanted power at the Battle of Hastings. He had the Domesday census taken to learn about his kingdom. This helped William and future kings build a successful system of collecting taxes, which would help them build up their kingdom.
  • Edward I
  • What is it?!
  • Henry II expanded the system of royal justice. Henry II developed an early jury system in England. He also laid a foundation for English Legal system.
  • Hugh Capet
  • King John was Henry's son. King John was a greedy and cruel king. He had three powerful enemies; King Phillip II of France, Pope Innocent III, and his own English Nobles. He lost his struggles with each. When he lost the battle against Phillip II he had to give up English-held lands in Anjou and Normandy. John signed the Magna Carta.
  • Edward I summoned Parliament to approve money for his wars in France. Parliament was a help in England. Over the centuries parliament gained the crucial "power of the purse." It won the right to approve any new taxes.
  • I got it!
  • Hugh Capet built an effective bureaucracy. Government officials collected taxes and imposed royal law over the king's domain. By establishing order, they added to their prestige and gained the backing of the new middle middle class of townspeople.
